Let's take a closer look at what components a high quality car valeting kit should include:


Pre-washing is one of the most important aspects of safely cleaning your car and required before any contact wash with car shampoo.

Car Shampoo

When it comes to cleaning vehicle's exterior, selecting the appropriate car shampoo is crucial.

A high-quality car shampoo will effectively remove dirt, grime, and road contaminants, while being gentle on your car's paint - meaning being pH neutral and sufficient lubrication. 

Our kit includes a shampoo without wax if you don't want additional protection or we have a shampoo with wax. In other words a perfect wash kit.

Our kit includes dedicated products for both wheel cleaning and protecting your wheels and tyres. 

Something that is often overlooked in other valeting kits.

Microfibre Cloths and Wash Mitts for Scratch-Free Cleaning

To ensure a scratch-free cleaning process, microfibre cloths and wash mitts are essential tools.

Microfibre cloths are soft and gentle on the surface of your car, making them ideal for drying your car and wiping off wax. Drying towel is of course included in this complete detailing kit.

Wash mitts provide excellent coverage and help in effortlessly removing dirt and debris without leaving scratches or swirl marks.

The Ultimate Car Wash Equipment Selection

In this section, we will explore the various types of car wash equipment that you might be interested in - to compliment your car valeting kit.

With the right tools at your disposal, you can achieve a thorough and effective car wash right at home.

Here are some of the essential car wash equipment options to consider:

  1. Pressure Washers: A pressure washer is a powerful tool that uses high-pressure water to remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants from the surface of your car. It provides a deep clean and helps to restore the shine of your vehicle.
  2. Foam Cannons: Foam cannons are attachments that can be used with a pressure washer to create thick layers of foam with our included pre-wash shampoos / snowfoam. The foam acts as a lubricant, helping to lift and remove dirt from the surface of the car without causing scratches or swirl marks.
  3. Trigger Gun: Enables you to use your pressure washer and foam cannon more efficiently. By including these car wash equipment options in your valeting kit, you'll have everything you need to achieve a showroom-worthy shine at home.

Car Valeting Kit vs. Individual Auto Detailing Supplies

In the world of car care, the right products can make all the difference in achieving a showroom shine.

When it comes to car valeting, you have two options:

  • Investing in a complete car valeting kit
  • Purchasing individual auto detailing supplies

Both options have their advantages, but which one is the best choice for you?

The Benefits of an All-in-One Valeting Kit

An all-in-one valeting kit offers convenience and cost-effectiveness.

It contains all the necessary products for a comprehensive car cleaning routine, including exterior car valeting products, microfibre cloths, and interior car detailing products. With a valeting kit, you don't have to spend time researching and buying each product separately. 

Not only does an all-in-one valeting kit save you time, but it also saves you money. Purchasing a complete kit is often more affordable than buying individual products.

Manufacturers (like us) often offer discounted prices for valeting kits, making it a budget-friendly option for you as a car owner.

Furthermore, an all-in-one valeting kit ensures consistency in the quality of the products you use.

Each item in the kit is carefully selected and designed to work together seamlessly, providing optimal results. This eliminates the guesswork and uncertainty of whether the individual products you choose will compliment each other effectively.

Customisability: Tailoring Your Valeting Kit to Your Needs

While an all-in-one valeting kit offers convenience and money saved, you might prefer the flexibility of customising your own collection of auto detailing supplies.

By selecting individual products, you have the freedom to choose the specific brands and formulas that best suit your preferences and requirements. 

When it comes to car valeting, the decision between a complete kit and individual supplies ultimately depends on your preferences, needs, and budget.

Whether you choose the convenience of an all-in-one valeting kit or the customisability of individual products, the key is to invest in high-quality items that will help you achieve the showroom shine you desire.
